Japan, the land of rising sun, had the first Disney theme park out of U.S. Tokyo Disneyland has a number of attractions. Listed below are the top 5 ‘must-see’ spots.
Top Attractions In Tokyo Disneyland
It opened in 1996 in Tokyo Disneyland, which is a mirror image of the actual Toontown at Disneyland in California. Not literally, but it has almost everything to give you a feel that you are at the Disneyland in California.

The biggie attractions here are Mickey’s House and Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin. The former will have you greeting Mickey, while the latter is a dark ride, having its inspiration from the “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”
To start off, it has the Alice’s Tea Party, Castle Carrousel, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, It’s a Small World, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Peter Pan’s Flight, Pinocchio’s Daring Journey and Snow White’s Adventure. Nevertheless, there are a number of surprises in store. The Haunted Mansion in Fantasyland is not something one would expect, but it is there.

It even has a Cinderella’s Fairy Tale Hall, which is a walkthrough attraction in the castle. It features artifacts and art briefing you with the Cinderella story. However, with many people wanting to be in this Hall, one has to wait too long for a walk-through.
When here, it’s a crime not to have a lunch at Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall. It is a buffeteria, which has a theme clayed with the animated Alice in Wonderland characters. Desserts here can steal your heart.
Westernland and Critter Country
Westernland, or shall we call it the Frontierland, is no disappointment. It is a copy and actually a good copy of the original. On the other hand, Critter Country became a part of Tokyo Disneyland in 1992, but is better known for being a new home for Splash Mountain.

Western River Railroad and Tom Sawyer Island will even keep the visitors interested. Apart from that, one would even notice the Beaver Brothers Explorer Canoes and Country Bear Theater. If the trip around the river feels intense, one can opt for the Mark Twain Riverboat, which makes is a less intense trip.
Adventureland makes for a perfect finishing. Especially the Tiki Room, which has a refreshing new feel. Unlike the old Tiki Room show, this one has a popular Disney animated movie character, taking over the original counterpart.

Stitch is the catchy thing here. Basically, Stitch’s attempt is to force his way in the Tiki Room show. This might remind you, of the attempts made by Lucy to make her way into the Tropicana Club shows of Ricky.
Moving on, you might even find the Café Orleans, the Blue Bayou and the Pirates of the Caribbean in the Adventureland. For a soup and bread fanatic, Adventureland had options like Boiler Room Bites, Cafe Orleans, China Voyager, Crystal Palace Restaurant and Polynesian Terrace Restaurant.
Last but not the least, World Bazaar is a covering, which provides shelter from Japan’s unpredictable weather.
